Some great experimental poetry if you're in the San Diego area this Friday:

 Which Selves Built Up from Image: Visual Arts and Asian-American Poetry 

 Cynthia Arrieu-King, Ching-In Chen, Sueyeun Juliette Lee 

A criti-fictional assemblage intervention of collective and collaged Asian American poetry identities :: space to the many iterations of boundary and territory, exchange and silence, that are bound together in Asian-American contemporary works.

Cynthia Arrieu-King is the author of People are Tiny in Paintings of China (Octopus Books, 2010) and an assistant professor of creative writing at Stockton College.
